Overview

The route overlaps with parts of the Transcaucasian Trail. Some segments are dirt road and some are ancient trails dating back hundreds of years! There are a few steep sections of 15% grade or more. Also, one segment with natural stone steps.

Need to Know

For emergency services dial 911 or 112. Note that cell service is unreliable in many parts of the park. Guesthouse accommodation is available in Dilijan, Gosh, Parz Lake and Teghut. Wild camping is tolerated throughout the National Park; please follow Leave No Trace principles at all times.

Description

From a distance, from the cliffs, you would never imagine there would be a trail through there. As you get closer, you'll find the trail with tight switchbacks and stone steps going through the cliffs. From the high point, the trail passes through a high meadow and connects to the TCT. This high point also provides some incredible views of all of Dilijan National Park and the surrounding area.

Flora & Fauna

In the springtime the wildflowers are amazing. There are many birds that call these cliffs their home as well as many other wild animals.
